The Surgeon General is pressing Americans to put on a mask while they're in public. Speaking with the White House coronavirus task force, Jerome Adams explained wearing a face covering is "not a suppression of your freedom" and argued it’s actually "a vehicle to achieve our goals."
How so? Adams also said it adds to Americans' freedom by allowing states to open up more businesses. The Surgeon General pointed to younger Americans so they can have proms or play sports. His comments come as several states see spikes in coronavirus cases.
Meanwhile, the Trump campaign is canceling plans for a rally in Alabama next week because of the rising number of coronavirus cases. President Trump had planned to campaign there before voters decide which Republican they want to challenge Democratic Senator Doug Jones. The Trump campaign says they have no upcoming rallies announced, but they are working to identify locations for future rallies.
